A friend said he would bring a Peter Michael red,so I thought it would be fun to bring a white.

The opening nose is predominantly citrus and jasmine, not the ripe stone fruits I was expecting. Golden apple, pear, roasted nuts, and hint of brioche followed as it opened up in the glass. Viscous but not heavy on the palate with well judged acidity. Beautiful balance between richness and delicacy. Long mineral driven finish.

This was really refined and had a great fruit flavor profile while a touch restrained and not over the top. Certainly some elegance here. Only a Coravin taste so excited to finish this soon
